This weekend in Door County--the World-Famous Sister Bay Bowl.  While I'm Irish and I'm sure to be enjoying some of the weekend's local festivities, it's a good time to mention the Sister Bay Bowl--because by the time May comes, there won't be a ten minute wait on the weekends.  There will be a two hour wait.  Also, I owe a friend dinner, and I am sure this will be the restaurant of choice this weekend because the food is fantastic.  Friday, locally caught perch delivered by Maricque's.  Saturday, excellent prime rib. The Bowl spent a good part of the last year being written up by national periodicals and getting a lot of great press, because it's the last of a dying breed.  It's an old-fashioned bowling alley with a supper club attached, a great wait staff, and some of the friendliest ...

Looking for something special to eat or drink while you spend some time in Door County over the holidays?  Look no more!  Top Shelf Cafe and Gourmet, located at the Country Walk Mall in the Upper Village, has a little something for everyone.  Great food, great spirits and a great place for gourmet gifts.  I like their tea selection, and they have a great selection of artisinal cheese that is to die for.  Great salads and much more  Top Shelf Café and Gourmet --worth a stop!!!

  One of Door County's best-known visitor attractions is Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant, in Sister Bay, Wisconsin.  Al Johnson's is a family-owned establishment, serving authentic Swedish cuisine.  The restaurant has a sod roof and goats can occasionally be seen grazing on top of the building!  Inside, the decor is warm and inviting, even remarkably authentic.  The foyer reminds me of a restaurant I visited some years ago on the shores of Sweden's Lake Vattern. My personal favorite is the Swedish pancakes, with whipped cream and strawberries.  The ample menu also includes Swedish meatballs, Broiled Norwegian Salmon, cold plates, limpa bread, lingonberries, pickled herring and pickled beets, Door County whitefish and Lake Michigan perch.  Meals are served by waitresses in authentic Swed...

  When you go to a restaurant you haven't visited in over twenty years, you expect to find things changed.  The menu is usually different, or the food quality something less than you remember.  So imagine my surprise when I stopped at the Sister Bay Bowl, in Wisconsin's Door County, on a chilly off-season November evening and it was almost as if I'd stepped into a time machine. The origin of the Sister Bay Bowl dates back to 1950, when the Willems family began operating the Sister Bay Hotel.  In 1958, Earl and Rita tore down the dance hall and constructed a six-lane bowling alley.  By 1964, the bowling alley included a supper club, which became today's Sister Bay Bowl. I first visited the Bowl in the late 1970s, when I was a faculty member at the Birch Creek Music Academy in Egg Harbor,...
